THIS MONTH'S FEATURES
Thanks to our website visitors who were
faithful during the long, hot summer when many abandon frequent
Internet visits. This website had over 400,000 during
August (a record) and over 1.15 million during the summer from
103 countries (another record). We hope to continue
providing you with pertinent texts and photos, and as always we
look forward to hearing from you.
have continued through the year with an addition in every month
except July. We have completed the "Sounds and Silence"
contributions during the summer (Sound Pollution in
August and Reclaiming Silent Space in September).
For the month of October we are presenting a modified Globish
as a better tool for communicating English among readers.
In November, you will receive our Morality of Nuclear Power, a
most timely subject due to the global movement towards a
carbon-free energy economy. In December, we intend to
complete the year with the "Right to Dry" Clothes Outdoors
by its foremost proponent, Alexander Lee. We hope you give
careful viewing of all these 2007 Special Issues.
Nature Photos have been appearing at one a
day -- quite an undertaking. Many are from Janet Powell's
growing library but, as many readers note, some are from other
contributors. We will honor voluntary digital submissions
via e-mail (webperson +at+ earthhealing +dot+ info), and
will make an effort to pair contributor's submissions with a
Daily Reflections entry.
Birthday gifts can be for social justice
projects. Donations for Earthhealing.info are always
welcome, especially since this costs us slightly more than $50
per day, whatever the size of the viewership. And this
does not include much total or partial donated time by various
staff members. We invest very little in raising funds, but
are starting to look for sponsorships and grants to tide us
through 2008 and inevitably rising costs. Have you got
someone in mind who would appreciate a day's sponsorship on
their birthday? We will note the contribution on that day
if you wish and if sent three weeks ahead of time. (Click
here for our Donations page).
The year 2008 looms before us. For the past
four years we have introduced a unique Daily Reflections
(1461 different entries) but it may be time to revisit the 2004
topics which had far fewer visitors that first year (about what
we get now in four days). These 2004 subjects need
updating and a fresh look.
Future books are being planned. One that is
being finished at this time is Redeeming Tobacco that
treats the general and personal history and health effects of
past tobacco use along with attention to new uses of tobacco for
producing low-priced pharmaceutical products. Art Purcell
promises to help us with a book on Noise Pollution, if
his health keeps improving. If time permits a future book
on Radically Sharing World Resources could be in the
The term "Earth Healing" (EH) has been used by our Environmental
Resource Assessment Service (ERAS) for two decades. Through
ERAS, we have assisted over 200 groups in 34 states and Canada.
EH has been used on our weekly television shows on WOBZ-TV at
London, Kentucky for the past six years. EH was also the name of
a book by Al Fritsch and Bob Sears. And finally, it is now being
used for this website and associated non-profit organization,
Earth Healing, Inc. We hope you enjoy your visit to this site
and invite you to join our mailing list!
